During a car journey, Daddy braked suddenly to avoid injuring a small rodent. "Daddy has a squirrel habit," the girls concluded about learning of the taxidermy squirrel in Pops and Granny's attic, and Daddy's evident attachment to it.
Claire started tae kwon do lessons this weekend. We have no photographic proof of the event, however, because after the first 20 - 25 minutes, she decided it was horrible, awful, intolerable, and she didn't want to be a ninja any more. Ninja don't quit, however, so we'll be back again next Friday - maybe we'll obtain proof then.
